Dr Hanneke Heyns qualified first in her class in 2002 from the University of the Free State and started her private practice at the end of 2003 in Cape Town.
With almost 15 years’ experience, she prides herself on providing comprehensive and quality care. Dr Heyns follows an holistic approach to medicine which means that she looks at all aspects of the child’s life, including mind, body, soul and family unit.
Dr Heyns loves working with children and building a relationship with each of her patients and their families. She sees children from birth to 17 years for all aspects related to their general health, growth, development and behaviour.
Dr Heyns is passionate about educating parents and involving them in all aspects of their children’s health. As a result, her examination area is set up to involve the parents in the exam, thereby creating a safe and playful experience for the child. All information is treated with the utmost respect and is used to better the understanding of the child and his or her problem.
Dr Heyns partners with Dr Kathy Krige to form Thriving Kids, a well-known and trusted entity in the paediatric world.
